-americans don't really care about border enforcement, but they do care about these overstays. the obama administration deported about 1.4 million people, or 1.5 million in their first term. the fear is that maybe they'll go after overstays next. >> and so, marcela, we know certainly there are a lot of communities, particularly here in california, that it's going to effect. the hispanic community is the largest of these communities. so what's the mood from what you're hearing? >> well, i think the mood is one of renewed optimism. as the president noted in his speech, i think it's actually one of an invigorated optimism combined with a pragmatism. a feeling of, you know, we've waited this long, there are many obstacles, pragmatic perseverance, i think, is in the heart of our community. but to be sure, a lot of optimism that we've not seen before, and it's really being expressed in new ways especially in social media where i think definitions of latino identity, latino clout, the ways that we tell our stories around immigration are now being seen for the first time. >> emil, you're from th
at christopher dorner and his violent manifesto. >>> on capitol hill yesterday, a surprise about the obama administration's response to syria's civil war. defense secretary leon panetta revealed for the first time that president obama was the one who blocked a plan to arm rebel fighters in syria. the plan was developed last year by then cia director david petraeus and backed by penalty gone leaders and then secretary of state hillary clinton. the white house had doubts about which rebels could be trusted with the arms. those details came to light during the senate hearing on libya. they had tough questions for panetta. he related he and president obama spoke once during the eight-hour benghazi attack that left four americans dead. it also explained why war plains weren't sent. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, norah. panetta says the reason planes were not sent is because it came in two waves. after the first wave ended, they all thought it was over. plus, he said there wasn't enough actionable intelligence on the ground to act. >> yo
and be okay as a republic. >> on the subject of border security the obama administration has record deportations, nearly 400,000 in 2011. one study shows the u.s. spends $18 billion every year on immigration enforcement, more than all other federal agencies combined. what more can be done? >> well i'll give you two instances, cocaine, a kilo of cocaine today is cheaper than it was when i was a federal prosecutor so we're not doing a terribly good job keeping the drugs out and 2,000 ak-47s went to arm the mexican drug cartel. i realize you cannot her m hermedically seal the border. we have two borders so i'm talking about both of them, but from a national security standpoint, a law enforcement standpoint, from a sovereignty standpoint i don't think it's asking so much we know who is coming into our country. it's not fair to people who are following the legal process to have an unlawful process so it's national nativeism, it's not xenophobia. we want to know what is coming into our country. janet napolitano has given the same statistics. to be honest with you, the fact our economy is

dropping. >> let me just tell you, first of all, i challenged the bush administration and the obama administration equally on the constitutional issues. my concern here is that they're not making america any safer, when 15% of the people hit by drone strikes are innocent civilians, you're creating a lot of animosity. it's making america more vulnerable. not less vulnerable. and beyond all that, they're violating the 4th, 5th and the 14th amendment of the constitution. i don't know if they teach pretzel making at harvard law school, but what they've done here is twist the constitution into a pretzel and that's not appropriate. >> steve: where is the outrage? five years ago there was plenty of outrage, mainstream media and the left. take a look at this right here. 144, screen left, democrats questioned george w. bush on gitmo and interrogation. 18 had questions for him regarding eavesdropping and parts of the patriot act. only 8 democrats are questioning the president with these drone strikes where people are getting killed. >> well, there is no question that a party wants to support
white paper which the obama administration told several judges if the sky came out, it would fall because it will reveal secrets is basically a diatribe against the constitution of the united states. it's chilling, eric. it says that a high level u.s. government official, doesn't even say who it is, can strip an american of his constitutionally guaranteed rights and kill him if it's easier to kill him than capture him and if he's imminent danger to national security. no standards whatsoever. that's the power claimed by kings and tyrant bees and its te power specifically denied to any government. if the government wants to interfere with our life, liberty, or property, they have to do it through a jury trial. >> judge, we don't have time to run this out but eric holder, 2009, used almost the exact same case for not waterboarding. am i mistaken? >> you know, eric holder has been all over the place on all of these things. you and i have disagreed on water boarding, but one thing i think we agree with and most of your listeners and viewers agree. the president can't kill someone and c

the capacity to deliver a blow to them. gregg: president obama has repeatedly said and his administration has said the military option is on the table. is that rhetoric in your judgment? is it sincere? does it need you to believe that in the end israel will be forced to act unilaterally? >> what's most important is what do the iranians believe? they don't believe that rhetoric. they have watched us wire brush the israelis in public for inching closer to a military option. the iranians interpret that that we don't have the stomach ourselves for the military option. they don't take it seriously. netanyahu said to us months ago that this summer is when he believes the iranians will cross the red line. and he will be forced to conduct some unilateral military action. it appears that will become a reality. gregg: iran's foreign minister claims his country is set to do a deal with the west to diffuse the situation. is that just a ploy, they are borrowing a page out of the iranian nuclear play book? it's a shell game and they are playing us? >> if you asked any american on the street. put a micropho
is defending the obama administration's attack to the benghazi attack. he says the u.s. didn't have time to respond to that attack. here is a bit of his interview over the weekend. >> this is not 911. you can't call and expect within two minutes to have a team in place. it takes time. that's the nature of it. our people are there, they are in position to move. but we have to have good intelligence that gives us a heads up something is going to happen. martha: leon panetta is set to testify thursday. lindsey graham has been pushing for that. a lot of questions about this. in terms of that timing just to adress whole issue, this isn't a 911 call. i remember john mccain say egg we lost two of those people in a 7 or 8-hour change. that would make him a tough statement for him to defend on. >> you heard other people familiar with the assets in the region suggest that we could have had a flyover to try to disperse this angry crowd. what i found interesting about what secretary panetta said. he seems to be blaming the intelligence community saying we need better intelligence. certainly there ar
. martha: what do you think it tells us about the obama administration's policy towards the war on terror? >> i think a couple of things. they don't want to get their fingers dirty. they don't want american casualties. known wants that. the problem i think is three in the whole drone war idea, number one we may have been very good at the very beginning when we were taking out key people in very difficult to reach parts of pakistan and afghanistan but we've now expanded that drone war and are the third thing martha that worries me probably more than anything we are lowering the threshold of when we use force. it's an important thing to have americans in the loop. by doing something where no americans are at risk. martha: it negates your ability to get intelligence from any of these individuals. >> yeah, they are dead. martha: we know the president is not fond of the gitmo model. it raises a lot of questions about the most useful way to apprehend people and get information from them. as far as we know, right we are talking about anwar al-awlaki, and american-born citizen who we know was an

that the obama administration has gotten the tax increases they have want. taxes have gone up on american families. revenue is up. now americans are asking congress to do the rest of the project, which is deal with the spending side of the equation and none of us want the across- the-board cuts you would get with the sequester. americans would like congress to do its job and try the areas that need to be cut. that is a two-way street. the white house has never set down on the other side of the table to engage. host: if the sequestration goes through, $85 billion across-the- board, what does that mean for the economy? guest: it means we are implementing what was agreed to in a bipartisan agreement in the past cycle. remember, all the parties sat down and said how can we work this through, and what is the amount of money we need to be spending? republicans and democrats started at different points, but came to an agreement that we need to begin cutting spending to the tune of $1.2 trillion over 10 years, so basically it would be and lamenting a bipartisan agreement. host: so, what is the li
and assets due to fraud in the housing sector and lower wages and employment. under the obama administration, why is it that african-americans are doing worse under his administration more than the, like i say, last, previous four administrations? thank you. >> guest: well, the unemployment among blacks is now 16-plus percent. and so, um, whites are doing marginally better. blacks are doing significantly worse. the question is how much of that do we ascribe to the president? of course, there are other market forces and factors, i suppose, but i think that's a good question to put to the president. i should say at the same time that nobody wants more than i do to see president obama succeed, succeed. it is very important to the black community. that he have a successful president, presidency. and i think to some extent that's why blacks have not been disposed to be harshly critical of him because of things we might think he should have done but has not done. i think the political space he operates in is very small on these kinds of issues, um, and i don't know if he is willing to push out tha
these difficulties. i have consistently commanded the obama administration for not letting politics get in the way of what is the essential rubric of the u.s.-israeli ire of our relationship, which is the military strategic support that be -- bilateral relationship, which is the military support that is provided. my friends in the administration have done everything they could to ensure politics do not get into the way of that relationship. host: this is from one of our other viewers following up on your earlier point about how the iranian people see americans. my father was from iran and we always wanted better relations with the u.s. that's me bring it back to the elections that will take place in june -- let me bring in that to the elections that will take place in june. what will take place? guest: i'm afraid very little. mahmoud ahmadinejad has a total breach with the people around him over domestic and foreign policy. there is no doubt that the economics sanctions have undermined the iranian economy. that has caused great hardship among the iranian heart -- iranian people. the sanctions are
that the obama administration is following is consistent with and really derived from the bush administration approach to the war on terror. and i think it is entirely sensible. whether it is foreign citizens who are involved with al qaeda or american citizens, we are in a war. they have attacked us. we have a congressional authorization to use military force in response. and that's what's at stake here. this is not, you know, robbing the 7-eleven down on the corner. these people are engaged in war against the united states. whether they're american citizens or not, we have entitled as a basic matter of our inherent right of self-defense to respond accordingly. jenna: let's talk a little bit about policy not just now but decades into the future which we have to consider as well. as a matter of policy and how this is being applied right now, do you have any concerns about how it could be used under a different administration at a different time? >> well, i think it could be used less effectively by a future american administration. look, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, uavs, is a huge ste
